Did I fail my dad? I want to be an artist, not play in the WMBA.
This is so stupid. Why did my dad send me to this dumb camp?
I'm going to be invisible all week. At least then I can draw.
Sorry I ran into you!
Diondra is taller than usual girls and even some boys. Her dad wants her to use her height to professionally play basketball, but she wants to be an artist and is now wondering is she failed her father.
Hello, I'm Mrs. Armstrong, and I will be your counselor for the week.
Diondra's dad is sending her to basketball camp to push her into a career in the WNBA. She feels displaced and is still wondering if she should follow her dad's dream for her or be an artist.
(2) You know, I wanted to be in the WNBA, but I was short and people doughted me. I played in the WMBA for 5 years, and proved that my size didn't block me from my dream.
(1) Why arn't you with the others... Oh that very realistic.
A boy runs into Diondra as she sulks over to her cabin. He apologizes, but she feels disconnected and angry, but she makes the best of it with ideas of sneaking off and drawing instead of participating in camp.
Thank you Mrs. Armstong!
The consoler, Mrs. Armstong introduces herself to Diondra's cabin mates. Her voice is low and stern but her personality is kind and caring. (Here you can see that Diodra is taller and thicker than most)
Like she planned, Diondra sneaks off to draw while the other kids are participating. Mrs. Armstrong catches her and starts to ask her why she is not with others before seeing the drawing she was finishing. Mrs. Armstrong connects to Diondra's wish to be an artist and has a flashback to when she was young and wanted to play i the WNBA but people doubted her because she was short. She played 5 years in the WNBA proving those people wrong.
Mrs. Armstrong's personal experience inspires Diondra to pursue her dream to be an artist and to not let anyone define her based on her size. Diondra has an art degree and sells her paintings for thousands of dollars each. Her parents weren't found of the idea at first, but are now very proud of their daughter.
